As promised during the spring election, the Ford government has introduced that, if passed, would scrap the Green Energy Act.
It was introduced in 2009 under then premier Dalton McGuinty in a bid to grow the province’s solar and wind energy supply.
”The days of sweetheart energy deals, energy insiders and unpopular projects forced on local municipalities are over,” said Energy Minister Greg Rickford.
Infrastructure Minister Monte McNaughton says repealing the law will ensure municipalities regain planning power over renewable projects.
Critics of the Green Energy Act have claimed it resulted in an increase in electricity costs and saw Ontario overpay for power it did not need.
The Ford government says future renewable energy projects must first demonstrate need for the electricity they generate before receiving approval.
